If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can obtain it. You will have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP icon next to your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can get this info. If the currently listed address is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain straight away.
